Small / Medium volume batches with low tooling cost
The Hoefler gear grinding machine is one of the most accurate machines available on the market and under the correct set up grades up to Din 5 can be achieved on a production basis.
What makes the machine unique is that the grinding wheel can be trimmed on the CNC controlled machine to achieve a huge range of gear pitches without having to order specific grinding wheels associated with high volume production machines.
Also special gear forms can be programmed and tested which is very helpful with new designs or enhancing the performance in such industries as Autosport.
We can produce all types of spur and helical gears including splines up to 400mm diameter. We are limited to 350mm in-house CNC gear inspection. For special applications we can now gear grind from solid blanks.
